Dwayne Hill, who found fame in the 2004 comedy starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Mc Adams, describes himself as a 6’5 Emmy-nominated actor. But with Tinder, only someone you’ve ‘liked’ can make contact.
Adding ‘if you’re a good cuddler, I might let you join my gang’ in his bio. We’ve found it’s rare for guys to actually start up a conversation once they’ve matched with you, leaving you with lots of matches and not much else. Many men are only on Tinder for a quick hook-up, so if it’s a serious relationship you’re after this app might not be for you…
I have a huge owl in one of my photos and it’s 90 per cent of the time the thing they comment on!
Of course, once you’ve met your match there isn’t a 100% guarantee that you will get on like a house on fire. You’ll mutually agree you’d be ‘better off as a friends’ after one drink and call it a night. In September 2016, Tinder revealed the most right swiped jobs on the app i.e.
the professions which gained the most interest from prospective dates. Well according the research, teaching is the most right swiped for females and lawyers were top for males.
Those pictures that are perfectly posed and highly filtered were deemed less socially attractive and less trustworthy, so the more natural your photos the better.
It showed that you’re better off presenting your actual self rather than your idealised self if you want to attract a date.
You can also include your education and occupation in your bio.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. You need a Facebook profile to be able to use the app. Thanks to an update, we have Tinder Online which you can now use on any device – including your laptop or, dare we say it, work computer.
If you become insatiable and want more, or if you don’t have Tinder Plus, simply buy a Boost any time you like.
Tinder Boost has launched worldwide and the premise is: be seen by more people, get more matches. It even seems that some of our favourite celebs are happily swiping away.
According to a new study by Tinder, wearing glasses in your profile photos will reduce your chances of a right swipe. Instead of having specs appeal, wearing glasses could reduce the chances of finding ‘true love’ by 12 per cent, which is a pretty substantial percentage for something we had never really considered before.
